We really enjoyed to show! Very talented cast, great vocals and choreography. The orchestra was also top drawer.
The theme was surprisingly dark, but fortunately there was sufficient energy and humor to keep it enjoyable.
Our only complaint is...continued

A beautiful set, innovative choreography and a passionate cast. Definitely a moving piece that is both fun and heart wrenching. Just as strong as the touring cast a few year back!

These "economy" seats were in the 2nd row from the stage. This is the best play I have ever seen and I am buying a second showing right now.

I loved the show and the acting. I would almost like to go back and see it a second time. But as some of the other reviewers said, the lyrics in some songs were just muddled. The slower songs were fine b/c the background music was softer, but the...continued

Wonderfully done and deeply felt production of this more obscure musical. Especially enjoyed the lead performances of the two young men playing Moritz and Melchior. Beautiful sets and costuming.

First let me say that this show is mostly 5-star: the acting, the voices, the amazing choreography, costumes, staging, etc -- all are deserving of the highest praise.

I would love to give a five star review overall, but I must unfortunately...continued

The play and actors were very good. It's amazing how old the play is but is still relevant today. The Cygnet is a nice, intimate theater so there really aren't any bad seats.

The story line of teenage angst and occupation with sex, was strong, and unexpected to the audience. The voices were strong and the acting very good, especially considering the ages of the cast. There was very creative choreography. Go, but...continued

I love the Cygnet Theater. Every production I've seen here is amazing and incredibly put together in every aspect; cast, set, lighting, music, just everything. I would have given this a five star for this event for the performance. The reason for...continued

Hmmmm...it was 'DIFFERENT' is the best way I can describe Spring Awakening, verging on the 'bit weird'. "It wasn't quite what we thought it was going to be" was the consensus from our group of 4. It was set in the late 1800s and therefore the...continued

I give this 4.5 stars...it was a great performance, the leads were really outstanding! I first saw Spring Awakening about 5 or 6 years ago at the Balboa Theater. Because the Cygnet theater is smaller, I felt more "absorbed" into the story. ...continued

I'm sure I would have enjoyed this more if I could have heard what the characters were saying/singing. (I have no problems with my hearing.) I had great seats, close to the stage. The sound was such that the words were indecipherable. I got the...continued
